peak of hurricane season, and right on schedule, we're watching a tropical depression that has just formed off the coast of africa and still have that area of interest approaching the gulf of mexico, so tropical depression number 5 is what's new overnight. this is the forecast path from the national hurricane center, it should become tropical storm erin as we go throughout the night tonight. it's no threat to any land areas over the next seven days at all, so we'll wait and see what that does a week from now. closer to home we have moisture moving up into florida, a tropical wave trying to form into a tropical depression but a 70% chance of that happening. this looks like all of this moisture will eventually drench the southern coastlines of georgia, south carolina, north carolina, florida, and areas that are in mississippi and alabama, as much as six to ten inches of rain over the next five days, enough to cause flooding concerns. mara's already complained offair but it's a chilly morning in the northeast and the great lakes.
